(Mandatory for all New Start students)

Students will attend their New Student Orientation during the New Start program. For summer 2020, the orientation will be held on Wednesday, June 24, 2020. During orientation, students will register for their Fall 2019 courses and learn about different opportunities on campus. All New Start students will be attending New Student Orientation on this day and should not attend orientation before the program. There is not a way for students outside of New Start to register for our orientation date. Students will be placed into this orientation date on June 24 by the New Student Orientation team after submitting the application.


Family and Advocate Orientation Information (June 14, 2020)

(Optional for parents, family members, and other student advocates)

We know that you as parents and advocates have a lot of questions about New Start and your student's first year at the University of Arizona. To make sure parents and advocates can still get the information they need to provide helpful and meaningful support for their students during the program, New Start partners with the office of Enrollment Services and New Student Orientation to offer a New Start Family and Advocate Orientation on Sunday, June 14, 2020 during the New Start Welcome. At this program, you will learn more about what your student will experience during New Start, plus hear from campus partners like Parent and Family Programs, the Bursar’s Office, and the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid to answer questions about your student becoming a UA Wildcat!

New Start Family and Advocate Orientation is free but does not have any lodging options. If you require overnight accommodations, please make those independently. New Start will be in touch with students in the spring to request an estimated guest count.

Please remember to NOT sign up for parent orientation via the Next Steps Center.
